In our News Wrap Monday, firefighters in California have gained ground on the deadliest U.S. wildfire in a century. At least 77 people have died, with just under 1,000 still missing. Also, three Democratic senators asked a federal judge to remove Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general, arguing that because he has never been confirmed by the Senate, his appointment was unconstitutional.
